Her Harbour is the moniker of Montreal born, Ottawa based singer-songwriter Gabrielle Giguère. Employing autoharp and piano as her primary instruments of accompaniment, Giguère crafts deeply personal songs driven by her evocative voice and use of silence and rhythmic space.
Her Harbour’s sophomore effort Go Gently into the Night, is a collection of eight dream folk songs set in the Canadian landscape and focuses on how life and mortality occupy the seasons. “I wrote the songs at a time where I felt haunted by death. This album has been my attempt at making peace with it as a character of growing importance in my life.”
Go Gently Into the Night features performances by Mika Posen (Timber Timbre, Agnes Obel), Philippe Charbonneau (Evening Hymns) and Olivier Fairfield (Timber Timbre, Last Ex, Andy Shauf) who contributed to it’s strings, choirs and orchestral percussion. It was recorded by Dave Draves at Little Bullhorn, mixed by Howard Bilerman (Hotel 2 Tango) and mastered by Harris Newman (Grey Market Mastering). The album was released on E-Tron Records February 3rd 2017 and made the 2017 Polaris Music Prize longer list. Go Gently Into the Night is now being distributed through Midheaven in the US.
